Saturday walk 18th Feb 08
Yesterday Phil and I led a text/art walk in New Mills, Derbyshire. Themes for the collection of text, sound and image came from the Church of St James The Less, where we will be holding an exhibition in April. www.newmillsweb.com/ARTS/St James.htm A group of 8 left from the New Mills Heritage Centre www.newmillsheritage.com for a four hour walk in the sunshine, taking photos in the Tors and looking at the site of wonderful new Torrs Hydro Electric Scheme (due to start construction this March) http://www.torrshydro.co.uk/ walking by Torr Vale Farm, making sound recordings and writing at the river, walking the Canal, eating sweets at Swizzels Matlow, more photos and sound recording at Waterside and back finishing at Central Station.
We've gathered a wealth of material for future workshops, starting this Wed with a poetry workshop at High Peak Community Arts www.highpeakarts.org
